Where are you from/where do you live now?
I’m a product of the world living in Virginia Beach, VA.
Hip Hop; Beach Flow
How would you describe your sound?
Mainly hip hop but occasionally everywhere.
It always varies. But the main ones as of now are Michael Jackson, James Brown, Jay-Z, The Fugees, and anything independent and striving with their own rendition of what musical art is for them personally.
Greatest accomplishment to date as an artist?
Being able to touch and move people through music. No award or accolade can top that.
If you could sign with any label, what would it be and why?
It would have to be G.O.O.D. Music or Stones Throw Records. It seems like they let you breathe creatively.
Dream collaboration and why?
Intalek featuring Lupe Fiasco and Andre 3000 (prod. by Andre 3000)…because that would be dumb insane.
Where do see yourself in 5 years?
Seeing the world, meeting people, shaking hands, performing, creating music and enjoying life doing what I love.
Why did you want to be a part of ShaggFest?
Shaggy has always been supportive of, not only myself but the local music scene. Whether it’s rock or rap or whatever, he’s always been someone that had an ear in the local music. I respect him and his drive and it’s an honor. He doesn’t get all the credit he deserves and people don’t really like him because of what they hear or see. With me being somewhat of a voice to the area’s hip hop, I feel as if I’m representing them all. We don’t have a large platform anyway, and with Shaggfest I get to represent them and show the people that Virginia’s hip hop scene is a thriving. So I wanted to be a part of the festival to show love to Shag and represent my people as well.
What are you most looking forward to about the experience?
All I’m looking forward to is a damn good time..
